Fish Tacos

How was your weekend?  The weather here was unseasonably warm.  Jane and I took advantage by meeting Beth for breakfast and taking a walk downtown, and more walking with Phil to the library (they have a great children's section). We finished off the weekend with fish tacos last night.  I told Phil it reminded me of our Mexico trip a few years ago.  All we were missing were Coronas to wash it down. 

Ingredients for the tacos:

4-5 white flaky fish, like cod
1/4 Cup of canola oil
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoons chili powder
1 jalapeno, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
8 flour tortillas


Ingredients for the garnish:

Shredded purple cabbage
Hot sauce
Sour cream or plain yogurt
Thinly sliced red onion
Chopped cilantro leaves
Tomato Salsa

For the tacos:

Place fish in a medium size dish. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, chili powder, jalapeno, and cilantro and pour over the fish. Let marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.

Heat a grill pan to medium-high heat.  Remove the fish from the marinade flesh side down. Grill the fish for 4 minutes on the first side and then flip for 30 seconds and remove. Let rest for 5 minutes then flake the fish with a fork.  Place warm tortillas on a plate. Divide the fish among the tortillas and garnish with any or all of the garnishes.
